ABOUT PAULA REID

I AM AN ADVENTURER WHO BELIEVES IN LIVING LIFE TO THE FULL

Strengthen my physical and mental muscles through adventure

I aim to make the most of life and challenge myself - to strengthen my physical and mental muscles. I especially enjoy exploring places off grid such as remote tribes in the depths of jungles. Favourite expeditions include trekking in West Papua, paddling the Mekong in a dugout canoe, and living with the Dayaks in Borneo. These rewarding experiences were intensely physical in extreme environments and incredible cultures.

South Pole Expeditions, Yacht Racing & More

I also enjoy relentlessly tough challenges which force me to dig deep and find out what I'm made of. These help me feel fully alive, strengthen my mental and physical well-being, and get me fitter for the future. Expeditions include skiing full distance to the South Pole, yacht racing around the world for ten months in the Global Challenge, and cycling across 12 countries.

30 Years Of Expedition Experience

From these fascinating and relentlessly difficult experiences I have learnt a lot about myself and the human capacity that lies within us.
As a result, I firmly believe that we are much more capable and amazing than we realise.
My 30 years of expedition experience with the Masters in Positive Psychology help me understand how to optimise our functioning and flourishing. To sustain mental well-being whilst achieving enduring performance.

In three words: Challenge. Inspire. Thrive.
